SUMMER BLESSINGS AND REMINDERS Summer break has come! Lord's blessings to all the GHLS families as we head into summer. Thank you for letting us partner with you in your child's academic and spiritual growth during the 2016-17 school year. Report cards will be mailed the week of June 12th. Summer office hours will be 8:00 am - 12:00 pm Monday through Thursday during the summer.
Families that have signed up for summer school will be receiving information and details closer to the start of Summer School on June 28th.
If you have uniform clothing that is still in good condition and will not be used next year, please bring it in and place it in the uniform donation box in the lobby. There will be items available from uniform donations to students prior to the beginning of the 2017-18 school year. SPRING PRAISE CONCERT Grades 1-4 performed in the Spring Praise Concert on May 19. The video is not published to our GHLS Youtube page. If you were not able to attend or would like to hear the songs again, the concert is now available. The students did a fabulous job and sang with genuine praise to their Lord.
LUTHERAN HIGH SCHOOL SUMMMER CAMPS
Two of our Lutheran High Schools, Wisconsin Lutheran High School and Luther Preparatory School, have their summer camps available. View the offereings from both of these schools by visiting their summer camps websites:
During the last two weeks, the halls have been transformed. Colors and graffiti artwork have been added to improve the visual environment at GHLS. The graffiti artwork highlights the seven character traits that are studied in the Character Formation Project curriculum and our school vision, love, learn, laugh, and lead. The colors of the walls were chosen based on the mood and emotion they represent: Yellow – energy, happiness, Blue – trust, serenity, calm, Green – peace, loyalty, resourcefulness, Orange – confident, healthy, innovative. A special thanks to Zen Castillo for the amazing graffiti artwork and Jaymee Harvey Wilms for developing the painting proposal and the colorful creativity she added to the school.

SCHOOL REPORT CARD AND EDUCATIONAL OPPORTUNITIES State law now requires schools participating in the Choice program to post a link to the school report card on their homepage. This is the first year that Choice schools took part in the school report card system created by DPI. It requires two years of data to receive an official score on the state report card. Therefore, Garden Homes does not have an official score on the report card. The scores listed on the report card represent the state average. If you have questions about the report card, please contact Mr. Dodge.
A link to DPI's list of the available educational opportunities can be found here. It is now required by state law that a link to these opportunities are made available from our school home page.
